It's release day for Raygun Chronicles! This is an anthology that is greater than the sum of its parts. The book, curated by Bryan Thomas Schmidt, combines the best of of Ray Gun Revival magazine and adds in new works by stunningly big name SF/F authors. It's the best Space Opera offering of the year. Order now and give your favorite Sci-Fi geek a real treat for Christmas!

This sentence structure struck me as awkward: "Immediately he began to look around nervously." I could understand 'Immediately he looked...'

Oh, I do not like that. But it reminds me of books written 50-150 years ago where they use "presently" a lot.

"Presently, he started..." or "Presently, he began to..."

You have to read today's post about The Spiritual Villain. (For starters, this explains why Heath Ledger's Joker was more sinister and fearsome than Tom Hardy's Bane.)

+Torah Cottrill +S. A. Hunt Hmm, good thoughts, thanks. I like what I have for the episodes in this series but may use a freelancer for The Sword of Otrim novel (that collects all five novelettes into one). Appreciate you stopping by!

Introduction
I'm Johne Cook, itinerant wordsmith and Overlord-in-hiatus. I like prog rock, film noir, space opera, and the Green Bay Packers. I've sold some SF/F short stories and have a novel in progress. For seven years, I've been a founding editor of Ray Gun Revival magazine. I do technical writing during the day and watch movies and play PC videogames in my free time. I'm active in my church but don't push my beliefs down your throat. I'm told I'm a friendly, regular guy by people who don't actually owe me money. I usually have a miniature doxie in my lap when I'm home or a grandson on my knee when I'm out. In other news, I'm old enough to have two young grandbabies (but age and maturity are not mutually exclusive, heh.)

This looks really - writing interactive adventures using a web-based HTML5 app called Inklewriter.
 
Inklewriter is a new HTML5 app that allows writers to create "Choose Your Own Adventure’ Books" with minimum fuss. Everyone can write and publish stories on the platform, while exercising their creative writing skills and playing with the new mix of interactive technology.

Start writing and branch off into new directions, then share the final story with whomever you like. http://writer.inklestudios.com/

We have an old house with tree roots in our line. Cory from Dr. Rooter has been out here every year for awhile. He's fast, friendly, efficient, and always does a great job with a great attitude. When you have standing sewage in your basement, it's good to see a familiar face. Recommended.

The winter of 2013 / 2014. The extreme and relentless cold had strained my already aging furnace blower motor. With temps of -20 expected, my blower motor finally bit the dust. I called Lloyd's Plumbing and Heating. Troy Borgwardt came out, identified my problem, had a replacement motor on the truck, and was in and gone in less than 90 minutes. He quoted me a reasonable price and came in under budget. Troy was knowledgeable, professional, and efficient. I enjoyed getting to know Troy. More than that, I'm grateful to have a dependable blower motor before the Polar Vortex visits again tomorrow night. I highly recommend Troy and Lloyd's Plumbing and Heating.

Foundation Bible Church is a gathering of evangelical Christians located in Janesville, WI. Loosely associated with the Great Commission Conference, Foundation Church is a stand-alone community church with a strong scriptural core. At Foundation Church, dress is casual and the people are friendly. As they say on their web page: "You won’t need to put on a super spiritual mask to be a part of our church. Come as you are and you’ll fit right in. We value being real and strive to be authentic in all we do. None of us have perfect lives. Some days are better than others. But we are learning that God’s ways are better than our ways and what it means to be people of hope and joy." The church is small (currently 75 - 100 people on a given Sunday) but growing. Also from the church website: "Our church exists to ignite the faith of believers and to engage the hearts and minds of genuine seekers. We also have a passion to minister to the real needs of people with the genuine love of Jesus Christ. We invite you to come and experience the worship, the teachings, the friendly people and the honest and enjoyable atmosphere that are a part of our community. It is our prayer that no one will ever leave our church without having sensed the Spirit of God." Sunday School: 8:30 - 9:15 Sunday Service: 9:30 - 11 Sunday Evening Fellowship Time: 6:30 pm
